4. Social Media
We do not use social plug-ins.
We use the following Google services on our website: Google Maps and Google Analytics. If you click on a certain
page/function, data will be sent to Google.
5.1 Google Map
We use Google Maps in order to display maps on our website (e.g. for how to reach us).
5.2 Google Analytics
We use the Google function “anonymizelp” in order to abbreviate IP address. Google describes the function as follows: “The IP anonymisation function, part of the Google Analytics service, sets the last octet in type IPv4 user IP addresses, and the last 80 bits for IPv6 addresses, to zeros shortly after they have been sent to the Analytics data collection network. As such, full IP addresses are never written to the hard drive.”

An opt-out cookie will be saved onto your device. If you delete the cookie, or visit the site using a different browser or device, the process must be repeated.
We have integrated maps by OpenStreetMap into our website. When a map is loaded, a connection to www.openstreetmap.org is generated and data are transmitted (e.g. your IP address). To see how OpenStreetMap processes your data, please visit: https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Privacy_Policy.
